Mary Ellen Pense

“In my past 25 years as a music educator, I have worked with both preschool & school-aged children. My philosophy is learning through play. Nursery rhymes, singing games, folk songs & movement are the perfect way to teach concepts & motivate learners. Both my Orff-Schulwerk training & Kodaly Association membership support this approach.”

Lena Boot

“My background brings together architecture & art education & enables me to guide children through the wonderful process of making art. I create a warm & nurturing environment, encouraging children to explore new techniques & materials. I love seeing children create art as they gain selfesteem & confidence in their abilities.”

“In addition to my work as an early childhood educator, my teaching passion is working with preschool-age children giving them opportunities to be creative in art. Creating art is a sensory activity that allows children to observe, explore & use fine motor & cognitive skills. Art provides them with an awareness of themselves & their surroundings.”

Laurie Kornely

Lisette Lugo

“Art with children is a means of exploring & experiencing with materials & tools. I introduce simple art terminology as children create their art, allowing them the freedom to process, explore & problem solve at their own pace with encouragement & conversations. My educational background includes a BFA & courses in Early Childhood Education.”

I encourage creativity & with hands-on projects that give children choices. I have a degree from Academy of Art in San Francisco & training in early childhood education with an art focus. My love for teaching art has taken me from preschool to retirement communities, teaching ages 2 to 102, using art as therapy & teaching those with disabilities. Art is my passion.”

• MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS Merit Scholarships are awarded to students (grade school through high school) who have shown a high level of commitment, talent and achievement in their CSMA studies and who are ready to develop the additional skills necessary to become high-level performers, including: • Training in stage presence and etiquette • Working and performing in ensembles with other Merit Scholars • Learning how to rehearse effectively • Building a performance portfolio These skills are built through ensemble coaching sessions with CSMA faculty, special workshops for Merit Scholars and, most importantly, performances at high-profile events, both on- and off-site. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship, students must be nominated by a faculty member. Students only become eligible for nomination after one year of continuous CSMA private lessons (or 18 months, if absent during summer). Each year, CSMA awards approximately 50 Merit Scholarships, with competitive auditions before a panel of judges held annually in the spring. Merit Scholarship students and their families are regarded as the ambassadors of the CSMA Music School and are role models for all of our music students and their families.
